The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control issued new guidelines for Cuba travel licensing (pdf) today.
The guidelines show all the categories of non-tourist travel that can be licensed, and they provide examples of the kind of activities that meet and do not meet licensing criteria. As a result of their publication, the President’s new travel policies announced last January now go into effect.
“People-to-people” travel programs are restored by these regulations after being ended in 2004 by the Bush Administration; Treasury refers to these as “educational exchanges not involving academic study pursuant to a degree program.”
